Rating:

For a band that consists of members from Blackhole, Gallows, SikTh, and Spycatcher, it’s fair to say that there’s a lot to be expected of Gold Key‘s debut album, so, you’ll be happy to hear that ‘Hello Phantom’ doesn’t disappoint.

Rating:

To put it bluntly, and to cut to the chase straight out of the gate, there are seldom singer/songwriters and artists out there who can with ease, finesse, and great aplomb pull out pretty much any genre, sound, or style quite like Jamie Lenman.

ALBUM: Weezer – Pacific Daydream

Release Date: October 27th 2017
Label: Crush Music/Atlantic Records
Website: www.weezer.com

Twitter: www.twitter.com/weezer

Rating:

Weezer have been around for so long that they’re basically stitched into the fabric of the universe. They’ve partied with Hugh Heffner in their video for their 2005 hit ‘Beverley Hills’, and have outlasted some bands that that cite them as a key inspiration. So, the fact that their eleventh album, ‘Pacific Daydream’, is a pop-heavy, meandering, and ultimately toothless effort won’t trouble them a bit.

Scunthorpe’s Skarlett Riot have been making quite a name for themselves since forming back in 2010. The four piece, consisting of vocalist Skarlett, guitarist Danny Oglesby, bassist Martin Shepherd, and drummer Luke Oglesby, have recently signed to Swedish music label, Despotz Records, and have slowly grown into one of the UK’s most promising hard rock outfits.

Rating:

Stepping down from their position in quirky and arguably avant-garde metalcore outfit iwrestledabearonce, who notably toned down on their obscurities and refined themselves with 2015’s ‘Hail Mary’, vocalist Courtney LaPlante and guitarist Mike Stringer have got themselves hitched in more ways than one, in both a marriage and unveiling their own project together: Spiritbox.

EP: Anavae – Are You Dreaming?

Release Date: October 27th 2017
Label: Better Noise Records/Eleven Seven Music
Website: None available
Facebook: www.facebook.com/anavae
Twitter: www.twitter.com/anavaemusic

Rating:

Pushing the expansiveness of an electronic alternative rock hybrid, Anavae are back with another EP that toes the line between the over-the-top artsy bits of Thirty Seconds To Mars and the reverberating tones of PVRIS.

ALBUM: Hollywood Undead – V

Release Date: October 27th 2017
Label: MDDN/BMG

Rating:

During the MySpace explosion of the mid 00s, a few bands epitomised that specific generation of kids; From First To Last, Enter Shikari, and Cute Is What We Aim For to name a few, and then a few obscure acts made their way through the cracks, and no one epitomises those few more than Hollywood Undead.

Rating:

Michigan’s We Came As Romans have so far enjoyed what would surely be considered a successful career by anyone’s standards. Having been a band in one way, shape or form since 2005, the band have released five full-length albums to date, as well as touring with some of the biggest names in metalcore, including Parkway Drive, A Day To Remember, and Of Mice & Men, to name but a few.

ALBUM: I The Mighty – Where The Mind Wants To Go / Where You Let It Go

Release Date: October 20th 2017
Label: Equal Vision Records

Rating:

Progressive rock, for many people, conjures up images of dreary 12-minute introductions on pretentious concept albums that your bearded friend who drinks imported Pabst Blue Ribbon pretends to understand. If this is how you feel about the genre, then California’s I The Mighty are certainly an interesting prospect.

ALBUM: Stick To Your Guns – True View

Release Date: October 13th 2017
Label: Pure Noise Records
Website: www.sticktoyourguns.net
Facebook: www.facebook.com/stygoc
Twitter: www.twitter.com/stygoc

Rating:

Orange County hardcore punks Stick To Your Guns bring all the heaviness and excitement that you’d expect from the genre, but have the star power of band leader and vocalist Jesse Barnett that takes the band to a level above their peers. Their UK presence has even seen Stick To Your Guns take the leap from sweaty club domination to sold out academies during their recent outing with Architects and Parkway Drive.
